I need your opinion.

Im planning on buying 700w PSU, 16 GB DDR3 RAM, 240GB SSD, i currently have a AMD A-10 5800k Processor, will a RX 560 Go well with it or will it bottleneck?

My Motherboard is a Gigabyte ga-f2a88x-d3h.

Im looking forward to be able to play AAA Games Smoothly. Graphics quality isn't a must for me, medium-low or medium-high is just fine as long as the game runs smooth.

I also got a AMD FreeSync monitor.

I was looking for an opinion, should i buy a RX 560 or will it bottleneck my CPU (AMD A-10 5800k) ?

All answers are appreciated.

700w is overkill, 450w will do

 

RX560 will have some bottleneck with the a10-5800k, but cheaper cards arent worth buying unless you go used

You won't run aaa games on this sorry. :( Don't get 16GB of ram. Don't get a 700W psu. Don't get the card. I would save up and get a R5 2400G rig and get a better GPU at some point.

In terms of bottlenecks, the CPU should handle the RX 560 well-enough, however the card itself isn't the best for 1080p 60FPS gameplay in AAA titles IMO. But if you upgrade to an RX 570 which should be sufficient for your needs, you might run into CPU bottlenecks in CPU-heavy titles.

What's the budget you're working with here?  I think we can get you a much nicer system with a little budget balancing.

OH yeah, you can throw together a decent gaming rig in that range based off of an R5 2400G.  Bitwit did a pretty cool video of a budget build based off of this APU.  It's essentially a quad core CPU with a Vega series GPU on board.

 

 

This is a quick one I threw together, obviously there are plenty of variable options out there that you could choose to make it more suitable to you.  From my understanding, just make sure the motherboard has an "A" before the chipset label to make sure it's compatible with an APU stock.  For example, a standard B350 board is technically compatible with an APU, but it'll require a BIOS update that needs to be done with another CPU that will be able to boot the motherboard.  An AB350 motherboard, should work out of the box with an APU.  

 

The beauty of this type of build is that it's got a solid upgrade path.  The X370 chipset will support other AM4 Ryzen series CPUs such as the 1700 or 2700, so you've got solid upgrade options there.  Of course, you can add a dedicated graphics card.  The 2400G does come with a basic cooler, that does work pretty decently, but you can improve your cooling by getting an upgraded CPU cooler.  Especially if you want to do any overclocking.  A 550 Watt power supply will be more appropriate for this build, if you wanted to up it's 80+ rating, you could spend a little bit more to get 80+ gold. 

 

I should note, these are obviously all USD, I'm not sure what pricing is like in Europe, but given the exchange rate right now, you could probably choose a few upgrades to this build and still come out under budget.

Bought everything you suggested and added a 1050TI 4GB OC from Gigabyte.

Thanks a lot!

OH, if you bought a graphics card, then you should see if you can cancel the 2400G APU, and swap it for a Ryzen 1700 CPU. It's like $20 more, but it has 4 more cores, and you should be able to overclock it to the same core speed as the 2400G.

Even a 1600 would be a good option.

I canceled the 2400G and bought a ryzen 5 1600x.
